Why? What is the problem. Do they not want to ship to Cambodia.

Well, not sure. 

Paid in full, four days ago.

They started talking smack about possibly having to increase the shipping cost.

I told them I would not pay more than what was agreed to. 

They wanted to increase shipping by another 31 Euros, but would throw in two more saw blades.

Again, I repeated I wouldn't pay any more.

Waiting now.

That is not good of them, if they agreed on the postage price beforehand.

 

I was going to suggest to you that you build your own table. I have done this in the past. There is plenty of info on the web.

Believe me. After seeing one locally for $400 USD, I considered it.

It won't take you long to find several plans for home made table saws.  I've never used one, but it looks to me like the fence is not good and without a good fence...well, it just ain't!  I don't fret much about all the guards and such they put on modern saws, most folks take them off before use.  I always felt some of the guards make the saws more dangerous not less anyway.

 

What country did you purchase it from Paul?  Did you use a credit card for payment?  If it's an EU country, the EU will help you.  The EU is all about regulations stacked on top of more regulations and some of those cover taking money but not delivering the paid for goods.  If you paid by CC file a complaint with the CC company.  They may have some leverage with the company and the bureaucrats at the EU will love that you did that.

That, what he said. They don't seem to stop the common mistakes people make and they seem to bind up (or just break) when something bad happens, making it that much harder to clear without killing yourself.

Germany.

I think I used PayPal.

After telling them to just give me a refund, they said they would ship it.
